As a companion to your new student packet, you will find links to all the information you need to get ready for your first day of class.
Before Orientation begins on Saturday, August 24, there are a few things you will need to do. Visit the checklist to download the required forms and review the important deadlines you must meet before then.
In early August you will receive an email from Residential Education & Housing Services, which will include your housing assignment. The residence halls will open for first-year and transfer students at 8 a.m. on Saturday, August 24.
Over the summer, make sure to also complete your first-year summer reading assignment, The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water, by Charles Fishman (2012). You can find this book on Amazon and at other booksellers. The Big Thirst will lay the foundation for a year-long campus-wide discussion of water and humanity's relationship with it, in Southern California and around the globe.
Have a wonderful summer. We can't wait to meet you!
